Andy Horton Hippocampus Sea Horse

David Wilson I think seahorses are probably more widespread than we think.

David Wilson They have been found on screens at cooling water intakes for power stations in the Thames Estuary, and several were rescued and returned to the water after being washed up in a storm in Poole Harbour this autumn.

David Wilson he spiny spider crab suggests early summer.

Andy Horton Off Southwick we get the Short-snouted Seahorse Hippocampus hippocampus

Andy Horton They have been found on screens at cooling water intakes for Shoreham power station.

René Weterings Yes....this pictures contains a Nudi!! Go find it! ;-) (hippocampus hippocampus, found on divesite "Zoetersbout" in the Eastern Scheldt in the Netherlands on the 24th of october 2012.

João Pedro Silva I think there's something on the lower left corner but with this image size I can't be sure.

René Weterings I will have a look tonight at home, but I don't know what you mean.

René Weterings The nudi I meant is on the seahorses neck! It is an Elysia viridis.

João Pedro Silva Ah, now I see it! You can only see the head and the rhinophores and part of the parapodia of this Elysia viridis!

João Pedro Silva Did you spot it while shooting or only after seen the photo on the computer screen? I've gathered a few dozens of what I call "uninvited guest" photos. The most dramatic find was of a Cuthona caerulea on a photo of a Flabellina babai... and it was found two and a half years after the shot was taken :)

René Weterings Haha...funny. No, I didn't see it under water, only after watching the pictures on my computer at home!

João Pedro Silva This is my "uninvited guests" set on Flickr. Many nudibranchs but also parasites, copepods, shrimp, etc: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpsilva1971/sets/72157625904859297/with/4767925310/

René Weterings Nice!!
